The Noise-O-Meter helps set and manage the noise level in your classroom, without you having to engage in dialogue. This package comes with instructions on how to set up and manage the Noise-O-Meter. Printed on A3 paper, and I glue to paper before laminating to give extra strength, and then it is ready for use. I discuss with the class the required noise level prior to beginning the lesson and why, then turn the arrow to keep a reminder visiable in the room. If the noise level starts to creep, simply move the arrow to the next expected noise level section along and students will know this is a warning and a consequence may be in place. Do away with having to stop the class! Only $1.50
First week back to school and getting to know you, doesn’t need to be boring…Who went roller skating? Who went camping? We can do MUCH better than that! Imagine a class full of students discussing what they WOULD have done! This task explains how to get your students moving around and getting to know each other, as well as providing for some rich imaginative discussions afterwards as a group. A much better alternative to the usual people hunt.
OZClassroom Hacks is about anything that makes life easy in the classroom. Have you ever noticed that some staff seem to look a lot less stressed than others? That’s usually because they have the benefit of a few years under their belt and access to good range of resources. They are the one’s who know not to try and reinvent the wheel, but to use what’s already there.
This activity works great with viewing the movie Inside Out, and lends its hand to opeing some amazing dialogue about feelings and who we really are.
